The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend: 09/25/15
Hello! I am Beekle. I am your imaginary friend.
The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend by Dan Santat is a picture book about a marshmallow shaped imaginary creature who wants nothing more than to be paired with a child.
But poor Beekle sits and sits waiting for someone to imagine him. Everyone else seems to find a home and he's still there, waiting. What's an unimaginary friend to do?
He takes matters in his own hands. If a child won't imagine him, then he will go introduce himself to potential children.
It's a good message to encourage children to try things out themselves, rather than always waiting things to be done for them.
